Ever since the great fall of Harvey Weinstein a couple of weeks ago, powerful men who have notoriously been perving on women for ages have been losing jobs and being sued left, right and center. It’s really a very beautiful time in history for me, tbh. The latest pervert to be knocked off his pedestal is infamous photographer and chronic sleaze bag, Terry Richardson.
Creepy ass Terry Richardson, who looks like the neighborhood pedophile who collects old American Apparel catalogues, used to be a highly sought after photographer in the fashion industry, but since the entertainment and beautiful people business has officially decided it isn’t going to tolerate women being treated like sex dolls anymore, Terry has found himself blacklisted.
Conde Naste Industries, which owns the fancy af magazines like Vogue, Vanity Fair, and GQ, officially released a statement saying that would 100% never work with Terry Richardson again. Though they didn’t give a reason for this, I think it’s safe to say that no one wants to be associated with dudes who are constantly sexually assaulting and harrassing women anymore, because apparently it’s finally bad PR to work with people like that. Ugh.
Terry has had numerous horrific stories told about the disgusting and coercive shit he’s done to young women over the years so it’s great that magazines are finally steering clear of working with him, but it’s also kind of ridiculous it took so fucking long. However, I don’t complain too much just because the tides seem to be finally turning and douche bag perverts seem to be getting their come uppins, so I guess all I can really say is “Good riddance”.
Now that more and more magazines are refusing to work with him and American Apparel is gone out of business, I assume Terry Richardson’s career is pretty much on it’s way out, and thank god, because even if he wasn’t such a notorious pervert, he still looks like the kind of guy who would drive a rape van, and that’s really enough to creep me out.
